Today, environmental pollution is a major problem facing the world. The main sources of land, water and air pollution are extensive industrialization and intensive agricultural activities. Nanomaterials have attracted a lot of interest in environmental remediation. Due to their large surface area and associated high reactivity, nanomaterials perform better than other conventional methods for environmental cleanup. They act on environmental contaminants as small structures or small-sized particles that can be modified for specific applications to provide new functions. Nanoscale materials can be extremely reactive due to the large surface-area-to-volume ratio and the presence of more reactive sites. These characteristics allow for higher interaction with pollutants, leading to a rapid reduction in pollutant concentrations.
The present Special Issue of Nanomaterials is aimed at presenting the current state-of-the-art in the use of nanomaterials and nanotechnology in pollutant detection and removal. We invite authors to contribute original research articles and review articles.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Nanomaterials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2900 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
